The Legend



Built for IPSC competitor and based on the renowned STI 2011® format, this pistol is for those who not only want to shoot well but look good while doing it.

Built on STI’s modular steel 2011® frame with polymer grip, the Legend delivers the traditional features of a 1911 and allows the added benefit of high capacity magazines. The innovative frame design preserves the 17° angle of the grip in relation to the slide, original to the 1911. The essential design element for high capacity, the polymer grip, allows for double stack magazines without over-sizing the circumference of the grip, which remains comparatively the same as the circumference of a 1911.

The Legend couples STI’s legendary 2011® receiver with all the most desirable accessories in a factory firearm. The controls are STI International’s ambidextrous thumb safeties and knuckle relief high-rise beavertail grip safety (both hard chromed to match slide.) The full length Tri-top forged barstock slide features STI’s unique saber tooth rear cocking serrations and 20 LPI decorative cuts on the top. The barrel is a 5.0″ fully ramped, fully supported bull barrel. This excellent firearm comes standard with an STI square hammer, patented STI trigger system, STI S-7 sear, and titanium strut for smooth, reliable function. The Legend has black inlayed engraving on the polished sides of the hard chromed slide, hard chromed magwell, STI adjustable rear sight, Dawson fiber optic front sight, and a blued frame with decorative flutes.

The Legend ships with one 126mm magazine.

*STI is dedicated to ‘Continuing the Evolution of the 1911′ and we periodically implement ‘rolling changes’ to our product specs. While we do try to keep the website and catalog photos as current as possible, there is often a lag between an improvement being implemented and being reflected on our marketing materials. For this reason, all entries are representative only and subject to change without notice.
